Al Jazeera to release documentary on corruption in Maldives Al Jazeera has announced the release of a documentary that they claim, would show corruption, theft and abuse of power in Maldives. Created by the Emmy and BAFTA winning Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit, the documentary would be released on August 30, 2016 at the Royal Society of Arts in London. They however have not yet released the date on which the report would be aired on Al Jazeera TV. The invitation for the release of the documentary, titled ‘Stealing Paradise’ has been opened publicly. The invitation card claims that “Al Jazeera has uncovered new evidence of corruption, theft and abuse of power. The award winning investigative team reveals how a president hijacked a nation and millions of dollars were stolen”. The invitation card has been illustrated with pictures of President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayyoom and former President Mohamed Nasheed against a background of coconut palms and a speedboat. It has not yet been confirmed when the documentary was made. However, teams from Al Jazeera have been visiting Maldives from time to time and have been interviewing various people. VNews tried to contact government spokesperson Ibrahim Muaz Ali for a comment on the matter, but was unable to get a comment as he did not respond to our calls.
